Senate Leader: No Legitimate Medical Purpose For Marijuana

"Kentucky's got thousands of patients who are truly sick and really need a safe alternative medication to the pharmaceuticals that we're being provided today," Jaime Montalvo said, founder of the group Kentuckians for Medicinal Marijuana. Montalvo said a state-sanctioned system would give people in need of medical marijuana the comfort of knowing where and how the pot was grown and that it would be safe. Now, they resort to buying pot from dealers to ease their health problems, he said. "We're being forced to view website be criminals," he said. "We don't want to be criminals, but there is no other option right now." Opponents say medical marijuana opens the door to more recreational use in a state that's plagued by addiction to a host of illegal drugs. Republican Rep. Bob DeWeese, a retired surgeon from Louisville, said more rigorous clinical trials of medical marijuana are needed to ease his misgivings.
